The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.

Venturing is a youth development program for young men and women who are 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and have completed the eighth grade and under 21 years of age.
